Scientists used to believe that emotions were hard-wired into the brain.  Barrett offers a new theory on how the brain constructs emotions and explains how a new understanding of emotions could "revolutionize psychology, health care, law enforcement, and our understanding of the human mind.” 

Guest:  Lisa Feldman Barrett, Ph.D., is a University Distinguished Professor of Psychology at Northeastern University, with appointments at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital in Psychiatry and Radiology. She received a NIH Director's Pioneer Award for her research on emotion in the brain. She lives in Boston.
